1. New eating pattern:

Breakfast as usual.

Lunch- hearty.

Evening meal- not so hearty and very early- say 4 o'clock.

Ailz is keen on fasting. She's been going several days at a time without serious eating. I'm not tempted to do that but if I eat at 4.00 and then not again until 9.00 the following morning that's a mini-fast.  And I'll lose weight.

Also if I eat a very early evening meal I'll have got any indigestion/heartburn/reflux out of the way before I go to bed.

2. I'm trying to avoid sugar. It's impossible, of course, because sugar is bloody everywhere- including in things where it has no business being- like curries but one can dodge its more obvious incarnations. It helps that I'm craving sweet things less and less. I poured myself a glass of ginger wine the other evening- I used to like ginger wine- and found it so syrupy I was tempted to wazz it down the sink.

I've had very good luck with fasting, one or two days. I always feel great. But I suffer from food inertia so it's hard for me to get a good fast started.

It seems to be working for Ailz.

I think it depends on your metabolism. It suits some people but fasting does bad things to both my blood sugar levels and my temper. :)

For me the key has been to give up eating snacks of any kind. I just sticking to 3 meals a day. Re sugar, I avoid added sugar, in things like tea or cereals and I don't eat many biscuits or cakes, but I don't worry about hidden sugar any more. I try to cook from scratch, so a bit of sugar in baked beans or a sauce isn't going to do much harm.

Ailz finds fasting remarkably easy.

I hardly touch cake and biscuits these days. Just don't fancy them. I've never taken sugar in tea and coffee.
